We were looking for something nice, not too expensive. Our curry at Cinnamon fitted the bill perfectly. We enjoyed conversing with the staff. Hope to dine there again on our next visit to Taupo.

Cinnamon is my favourite Indian restaurant in Taupo. Great price point , and friendly. I find a few other places in Taupo are way too sweet for me . Favourite dishes are Korma and Tikka Masala. Have also had a great vege curry from here too

We were looking for a authentic Indian meal. The menu on offer was extensive and they were happy to my wife's request to extend an entree to a main.

We were a bit unsure about eating here as the restaurant was empty, at about 6.30 in the evening, but were in the mood for Indian food so gave it a try. We were pleasantly surprised - the food was good and the staff were friendly. Interesting painted furniture too!
